Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"Transitions are the moments when children move from one activity or routine to another." Transitions are crucial and difficult times for teachers—times when children become distracted and chaos can ensue. These 600+ activities have been collected from teachers all over the US and can be used to promote constructive use of time when no formal planning is in effect. Organized into 19 categories, such as arrival, art, cleanup, departure, gross motor, rainy day ideas, and so on, each activity lists materials and what to do. They also include the suggested age level for each activity. If related books can be used, they are listed, too. The introduction includes tips on room arrangement, schedules and routines, developmental levels, and individuality. Occasional black-and-white illustrations, a book index, and a thorough activity index are included. A handy book for teachers and caregivers in many settings. 2005, Gryphon House, Ages Adult.
